I don't know why, but I get the feeling this 'big secret' the Professor and Zoidberg are hiding will be a let down and the ending will be rushed. hmpf Just a hunch...
Well, this could be the Scruffy origin episode, and that may be the secret somehow.
That might just be ridiculous enough to happen, so I've spoiler-tagged it.

Also Australian Futurama premiers are now on Tuesdays instead of Wednesdays.

This will almost certainly be the Scruffy origin episode, but I'm not expecting anything more than a quick throw-away gag about where he came from.

Good old Scruffy. Should be interesting to get to know a little bit more about him, but hopefully only a little bit. Less is more...

So who is selling this giclee. Can't make out Matt Groening's usual signature/stamp either.

Grab from episode promo:

I found the giclee on acmearchievesdirect.com. On this site there are also other ones, which I think, we have already seen yet. But on kellyakins.com I have found an image, which I havenīt seen before:

I'm guessing that's fanart, isn't it?  And pretty fantastic fanart at that.   I love how they managed to get the farmer, Lulabelle and Daisy Mae in there too, and Amy is in there too (albeit flying in the spaceship)

I did get excited for a minute hoping it would be a Crushinator episode, but I guess not.  She is still as murderous as a girl can be.  End statement.

CGEF just put this on Twitter:

'Tonight's episode also features a song called 'Eggman' by Australian artist @eliwolfe who released his self titled debut LP in Sept 2010.'

Could be in a montage or an emotional scene? tongue Here's a snippet:

That song sounds too happy for an emotional scene. Probably just a montage.

This is of only interest to the other NZer here (that I'm aware of), but I just noticed that Four are playing the new 6B episodes. Not in order, but WTF, they're playing them.

The preview I posted is a two-minute clip from the episode, Danny.

And, yes, I know people in the UK can't see it. Just clarifying.

Edit: Danny edited his post, so now mine makes no sense. Pity, that.

And Otis: It was...interesting, to say the least. A bit too slapstick for my liking, but not all bad.

Please tell me I'm not being crazy and that you had originally responded to Otis by describing the preview storyboard that the CC Insider posted a few months ago. If I made up an entire post, I think I need to take a vacation from PEEL.

No I did, but then I realised that it wasn't those previews you posted.



Or did I....?

Also, Otis, there is a pic of the clip on the Infosphere, here:

Stop messing with my head, man!

Otis: If it's any consolation, usually Aki or one of those other technologically-inclined people posts a UK-friendly version of the preview clip at some point during the week. I only wish that I was remotely savvy when it comes to junk like that.

OOOO, look at this convo between Eric Rogers and Phil LaMarr on Twitter:

Another #futurama table read cancelled. I blame @phillamarr. And maybe @MAURICELAMARCHE. Okay, both.

@Kitchelfilms Don't blame me, I wasn't even in the last script

@phillamarr I keed, I keed...

@phillamarr psst, you have a pretty cool Hermes showcase on the way.... You'll be pleased.

He's most likely talking about the ep were Hermes starts cutting off his limbs and replacing them with robotic parts to be more efficient.

I dunno, I like the fact that we get to see Zoidberg performing more of his terrible doctor skills.  It's been a while if you ask me.  All right, all right, spare me your life story!

Haha, nope, if you follow two people and those two people contact each other you can see it. If I only followed Eric and not Phil I would'nt have seen that, unless he retweeted part of it. wink

I agree with Gorky on this. The clip is acceptable, but it seems that since BBS the writers have went ahead and let the show be cartoonier than it was before.

It's also been a long time problem for me that the writers pick and choose when they want Zoidberg to be a terrible surgeon. He's always been a bad M.D., but his surgical skills are either competent or horrifying depending on an episode's needs. As Gorky said, here they went over the top to justify that roving trait.

To speak about a specific concern in the clip itself:

Maybe Zoidberg doped her up on some painkillers?

I don't mind a bit of cartooniness. It is a cartoon we're watching after all - so long as it serves the story and they don't go overboard with it. We've seen a lot of cartoonish elements in the show before already, like in the honking with Bender turning into a werecar and getting Fry stuck inside his chest compartment and in I second that emotion where he flushes his torso down a toilet. I don't mind it at all - it can be quite funny when it's done well (although perhaps that clip was pushing it a bit).

The clip looks promising enough.

I don't mind it at all - it can be quite funny when it's done well (although perhaps that clip was pushing it a bit).

But I think there's a difference between the way the show plays with basic laws of the physical universe (tweaking the dimensions of Bender's chest cavity, for example), and its portrayal of pain and violence. I don't mind cartoonish-ness of the first variety--it's the second kind that kind of pisses me off. We are meant to sympathize with these characters and perhaps relate to them, all while suspending our disbelief to a certain extent. But when Leela can be
, things have crossed over into Wacky Cartoon Country, and it becomes a lot harder to care about the characters, or to accept the universe in which they live as "real." This attitude toward pain and violence and mortality and such is by no means new--Fry is dismembered plenty in "Why Must I Be a Crustacean in Love?", for example--but I still have never been too fond of it.
